I have a 5 year old Doberman who had been lame in his front leg for months. Our regular vets tried many conservative treatments to no avail. It was suggested that we seek the orthopedic vet specialist. We did that, he had shoulder arthroscopic surgery and is getting post-op physical therapy. I'm happy to report that he is lame no more. More importantly, a very expensive and long treatment has been re-imbursed by Embrace. As I mentioned, its so nice to have Embrace in my corner --I do tell everyone at the vets about you guys. Also, my daughter just added a great dane puppy to her family and is also enrolled in Embrace.
